Neo Nazis Launch Two Arson Attacks on Armenia Gay Bar
More on the history of ARF from Wikipedia, I’d click out to sources since it appears to be non objective.
Suspected Neo Nazis have launced two arson attacks at a lesbian-owned pub in Armenia’s capital, Yerevan, since the start of the pub.
Armenian News reported that in the second attack on 15 May, a group of young men arrived at the gay DIY Rock Pub around 6pm, where they burned the bar’s ‘No to Fascism’ poster and drew the Nazi Swastika on the walls.
This rapidly followed a second attack earlier on 8 May, where a petrol bomb was thrown through the Rock Pub’s window.
Firefighters took 30 minutes to extinguinsh the blaze, which caused heavy damage to the façade and interior of the building.
DIY Rock Bar’s lesbian owner, Tsomak Oganezova claimed: ‘The arson attack on the pub had been committed by members of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation [a left-wing nationalist party].’
The Armenian Police, who took 12 hours to respond to the attack, eventually detained two young men they found on the bar’s CCTV footage.
